"Neo-Tokyo is about to explode..." So yeah, just seen AKIRA for the first time. Very eighties in style but I loved it. <3 Dec 15, 2017 at 11:44 PM

        One of the reasons I made sure to watch AKIRA was because of the appearance of Kaneda's iconic crimson motorcycle in the upcoming film "Ready Player One" which I am hyped for.

        Speaking of 80's anime movies I enjoyed Demon City Shinjuku (but couldn't really get through Megami Tensei).

        Well.... the only thing about the trailer that kinda irked me was that the framerate seemed a bit choppy in places (facial animation) still it's over a year away, color me interested

      I was rereading your post in the "Kamiya-DMC" thread and I think a game set over two different points in Dante's life might be interesting.

        It's certainly something different. At this point, if they do make a DMC5 and all it does is simply retread a "somebody wants the power of Sparda" then I might lose hope. :(

        The opening is pretty nice.

        Story concept is interesting but the show can be pretty somber. Funny thing is anime tends to be more somber than live action so its a different adjustment.

        Did you ever see the movie?

        What worries me more is Japan's lack of effective rehabilitation for these types of crimes. He'll do a stint in prison and maybe a substantial fine, but that is unlikely to solve the base problem here. :(

        Japan isn't exactly one to shy away from child porn in some way shape or form. The loophole is lolicon content, and the excuse of "if it's not real girls, then it doesn't count as child pornography" which is accepted by law, but not by the general society. Messed up I know.

        Well, the whole "Lolicon" is somewhat of a separate debate from this one as Watsuki was caught with pornography of actual *real* girls.

      I saw the video and it was interesting stuff. I havent watched any classic who and it's harder to judge capaldi's era because i just binged it before series 10 finale. I'm curious tho because the 13th doctor is gonna need a new myth arc as Moffat resolved the Time War.

        Hmm... Even during Doctor Who's golden age the show still had a shoestring budget, but people didn't care because the show always had powerful stories over amazing special effects. The cast were likeable and deep, villains were terrifying and even the Doctor wasn't safe. Also, keep it simple. Lord knows we don't need incredibly complex mysteries stretching across multiple seasons that Moffat loved.

        Best to balance humour and seriousness. Not too young but not too old. Also, don't be too dependant on the sonic screwdriver to solve the problems.

        It's probably the most niche anime ever and I doubt it'll be for you but it's "ClasscaLoid" - a show about famous Classical composers like Beethoven, Mozart etc etc who are reborn into the modern day.

        Hmm...problem is G Gundam is *very* different compared to the rest of the franchise which is more centred on war and politics mixed in with mechs. I'd probably recommend "Gundam: Build Fighters" as it's not very long (about 24 episodes), is relatively simple to follow and is occasionally over the top.
